I didn't see this posted; anyone seen this. Fake or not? Supposed screenshot from Apple store.
The 2.8 GHz Core 2 Duo and the SSD drive capacities are quite off for a thin computer.
An Intel LV/ULV with 32/64/128 GB SSD would have been somewhat more believable.
If real, then another question is
How about this option
Apple Cinema SHD Display (40" flat panel) [add $2999]
look on apple.com/store
then click macbook
configure and look its the same but the hard drive is different
i cant wait till tomorrow!!!!
Its good photoshop but not believable enough.
Well, for me, the thing that seems most suspicious is the 2.8 gHz chip. Seems like way too much energy use and heat for an ultraportable.
Throw in a graphics card capable of running a 40" display and you've got a toaster on your hands.
could be real
60GB ? Not a chance
SSD available in increments like this...
4 / 8 / 16 / 32 / 64 / 128 / 256
Even if they could put two drive together to act as one there is still no chance of a 60GB using those calculations.
Yeah, I think it's fake... The Ultra Portable Mac is most likely to have some low powered CPU, not a 2.8GHz...who you trying to kid?
I must admit, I love the idea, but to have that kind of CPU and be the same price as the current (past...depending when you're reading this) 2.2GHz Macbook Pro, is just a ridiculous idea.
Read the descriptions of the BTO options -- they all say "MacBook", not "MacBook Air". It would make no sense to drop the model name, or give and incomplete name, when Apple is consistent everywhere else. The BTO options for the MBP all say "MacBook Pro" in their descriptions, and the same is true for the Mac Pro and iMac BTO options.
^ True. An ultra-portable is not meant to be a powerhouse desktop replacement workstation.
If were lucky we will have a 1.5 Core2Duo
2.8 not a chance in hell.
yes this was already posted, and the specs given are highly unlikely for a thin ultra portable laptop.
80GB SSD BTO, WTF? Have they even come out with that? I know theres 128GB
4 GB of memory? 2.8 GHz core 2 duo? A graphics card (which, by the way, isn't even noted) that could support a 40" monitor?
That's a stretch... to the moon and back.
Every customize page says "Customize your Mac."
It doesnt specify the model, as this screenshot does, and that seems fake.
Um, I beg to differ.
32+16+8+4=60GB. *gasp* Apple's offering RAID 0+1 in the ultraportable!
But remember that also happened with the Power Mac G5 so it might be real
I saw that combination too. But the post you were quoting specifically said that there was no combination of putting two of them together to create 60 GB.
I don't think 4 separate SSD drives in one unit would help with the size issue.
lol would cost a bit more than the suggested $1999 with that many SSD drives
Sorry, but it's just a poor quality Photoshop. Take a look at the spacing before the pricing on the RAM versus the supposed SSD drives (which, as noted, don't exist in those sizes). Very poorly done.
I agree. Zoom in and you'll see the "SSD Solid State" font doesn't match.
obviously a fake. i would have believed it if it were in an elevator though
